Don't you just check for combined stresses interaction? 

mx/Mx + my/My =< 1.00 or 1.33?

Anyone know of some simple formulas, or reference, for designing an unbraced wood beam that has a torsional moment, (or twisting), at the center of the span as well as bending due to vertical loads on the beam?

Thanks in advance,
